A Few Days In Summer - Monday

Today our biggest school activity group of the year arrived at Blaithwaite - the staff and 81 pupils from Staindrop School & Academy, County Durham. Over the first day & a half everybody rotates through five activities (this year: kayaking, gill scrambling, rock climbing, gorge walking - the wet variety and on-site activities). Then on Tuesday evening choices are made and a single activity is selected by each pupil which they stick to for the next two days.

This year I am looking after the gill scrambling group and today two groups sampled the first 150m or so of Cat Gill in Borrowdale. Over the course of the week I'll work with several other members of our own staff and some freelance friends who are just in for the week - today its Becs. The weather was fine and day one's scrambling and complex logistics all ran very smoothly!

Straight after the last scramble and its time to pick up kit for an evening at Nenthead Mines with Alistair Myers of North Pennines Training and Adventure. We did the through trip from Smallcleugh to Rampgill via Proud's Sump - a late finish - back at the Centre 23:15

Its Hard to Imagine its Dusk At Nenthead
